The 1913 Lockout is to be remembered at a special event organised by the Dundalk branch of Unite the Union in The Spirit Store, George's Quay, on Wednesday October 9.
The evening will comprise a seminar with presentations on the significance of the Lockout past and present. Speakers will include Jimmy Kelly, Regional Secretary, Unite the Union, Martin Maguire, lecturer in history, DkIT, and Maeve Caraher, lecturer in industrial relations and human resources, UCD. Music will be provided by Michael Doherty.
The Spirit Store is an appropriate venue for the event, as it's not far from the old union office at the docks where Michael McKeown, one of Jim Larkin's right hand men, was based.
